Bottle shared in NH with AJ - thanks! Pours mostly clear, dull yellow with a foamy white head. The nose is hay, citrus rind and mellow grass. Light sweet flavor with pronounced bitter hay, lots of rind, orange, grass. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Moderately dry to finish with more bitter hay, husky grains, more citrus rind. Fair, though a bit overly bitter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
GABF 2013. Pours a fairly clear yellow appearance with a white head. Herbal honey, a bit twangy, lemon, vanilla, hay aroma. There was kind of strange nuttiness in the flavor once you got past the bretty, peppery yeasty, and citrusy notes. Kind of disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at GABF. Pour is clear yellow with a small white head and decent lacing. Bretty, wheaty, lightly spicy, some grass, biscuity and doughy - somewhat faint aroma. Taste is somewhat skunky, grassy, doughy, biscuity, hint of black pepper and herbs with a lightly tart finish. Light body with high carbonation. Really kind-of boring and lifeless, though nothing about it was offensive. Kind-of a letdown.
